Getting Started in Wattle - Introduction to Online Platforms at ANU

Come along to this practical, two-hour workshop introducing the online learning environment at ANU. The workshop will look at Wattle (which consists of Moodle as the main underpinning platform), including: 

  • Layout of your Wattle page
  • Books
  • Quiz
  • Assignment and Turnitin 

This workshop will show you how to find your way around this learning environment, how to use the common functions, and where to go for more information.

There will be time at the end of the workshop if you would like support for specific issues.

Who is it for?

This workshop is particularly suitable for staff new to the ANU, including academic staff, tutors and demonstrators, and anyone responsible for teaching and learning, and for professional staff who play an education support role. It may also be helpful as a refresher for other staff.
